Javed Akhtar to be discharged from spinal hospital in a few days
On November 28, his pain erupted, but he kept his word of being a part of the 175-year celebrations of the Times of India at Purana Qila, where his favourite singer Sonu Nigam performed.
While Javed sahab had initially thought he would leave after spending some time, he got so emotional with the music that he stayed on for the whole evening.
Next morning he just could not get up and, in fact, got locked in his bathroom as he was unable to move. His Man Friday had to break open the window to open the door and get him out.
His wife Shabana Azmi rushed to Delhi and he was admitted to a spinal hospital. After three days of suffering in pain, we are happy to let you know that he has been able to sit up and also take a few steps. The doctors have told him that he can be discharged in a few days.
We wish you a speedy recovery Javed sahab and eagerly await you back in Mumbai.
